Tblisi trams, Georgia (Russia), circa 1910

Tbilisi had a horse tram network (3' gauge) from 1883, and from 25 December 1904 an electric tramway (metre gauge). By the close of the Soviet era Tbilisi tramways consisted of more than 100 km of line and about 300 tramcars but they saw no maintenance and finally the only tram line left was closed on 4 December 2006 together with two trolleybus lines which were left.
